House to House Christmas Carol for Fundraising

welcome By: Elena Grace Flores
I was not too excited when one of the member’s of the homeowners association suggested for the group to go and conduct a house to house Christmas carol to raise funds for our Security Guard Facility project. However, when we started practicing, that’s when I realized that this is actually a good activity to bond with the fellow members and raise funds at the same time. Just like what many united people are doing. Read this:

Whether we can collect more or less doesn’t matter. What is important is for the neighbors to work together towards a common goal. This is  the true Christmas spirit – to be united and help each other not just in times of need but also when planning for future developments to make our community a better place to be. Just in case you receive a Caroling letter, give a piece of your heart and many blessings will come to you!

Wrong Political Move to Run After Hero’s Taxes

welcome By: Elena Grace Flores
English: Ricky Hatton and Manny Pacquiao at th...

I can’t believe hearing from the taxi driver his disgust over the government in freezing the bank accounts of Manny Pacquiao and his wife due allegedly to over 2 billion pesos alleged unpaid taxes.. The boxing idol of the Philippines announced on TV that he has to borrow one million pesos to fulfill his pledge to donate to the Yolanda victims in Tacloban. Here’s the full news:

Manny Pacquiao’s bank accounts frozen by Philippine authorities in tax row

By: Agence France-Presse in Manila

Philippine boxing hero Manny Pacquiao said on Tuesday authorities had frozen all his domestic bank accounts over allegations of unpaid taxes from lucrative fights in the United States, leaving him financially paralysed.

“This is harassment,” the former eight-division world champion said in an interview on ABS-CBN television, as he disclosed for the first time a freeze order issued by the Philippines’ Bureau of Internal Revenue in recent months.  http://www.scmp.com/news/asia/article/1366285/manny-pacquiao-says-bank-accounts-frozen-philippine-authorities-tax-row


Most of his fights during the peak of his career happened in the United States where the Philippines has a tax treaty with. This is to prevent double taxation on the payer. Since Manny got the income from a foreign source and paid taxes there, why is the Philippine government running after him? Customs, bank fees and remittance charges may already include the tax payments when the award money were transferred locally depending on which method he used for money transfers – but no matter how unclear the speculated tax evasion case is, it is very clear in the eyes of the public who love Manny that the government must be so corrupt and dumb for doing just that!

Community Power

Flow Diagram of the Eviction Process in Britis...

Homeowners association is an integral part of the community because when the laws of the land fail, it’s the people in the community that can voice out demands for their rights. Take the case of this eviction case blocked by the neighbors:

Neighbors block eviction for homeowner who paid for house five times

By:  BECKY ZOSIA DERNBACH

150 neighbors and community supporters successfully prevented the scheduled eviction of Jaymie Kelly, a Powderhorn homeowner who has lived in her home 30 years, this morning. http://www.occupyhomesmn.org/jaymie_blockade


In the contrary, the homeowners association also has the power to evict undesirable people living in their area. If they prove to be a threat to the community or merely just troublesome residents, they can be petitioned  out for as long as the legal process is already in place – to avoid disputes with authorities. Be active in your  community and make your association even stronger to face challenges in the future.

Time is precious and when doing one of your routines in web developing, weird things happen thus prompting you to start all over again. Stop and check if the weird reaction like losing all saved modifications is caused by conflicting plugins. Here’s how to test:

Testing for a Theme/Plugin Conflict

By: www.gravityhelp.com

Gravity Forms uses WordPress’ best practices to make it as compatible as possible with all themes and plugins; however, some theme and plugin authors do not adhere to these best practices which can often result in a theme or plugin conflict with Gravity Forms. http://www.gravityhelp.com/documentation/page/Testing_for_a_Theme/Plugin_Conflict


This may be an added process in your already hectic schedule – but it’s worth sorting out the root cause than doing all the wok over and over again until you get exhausted. Never allow not having a productive day just because of conflicting plugins.
